♫ Baby, It's Cold Outside, especially in Texas, where a clinical trial showed a new cooling cap system can prevent hair loss in cancer patients.
The ongoing trial involved 95 women with early stage breast cancer. After four cyles of chemotherapy, 48 of the patients—or 51 percent—retained their hair. Meanwhile, 47 control patients had no hair after four rounds of chemotherapy. The results were so striking that researchers decided to stop the study early and report their findings at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium last week.
